Best of the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards

29 Nov

Award season is in full swing and last night the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards were held in New York and the list of attendees/winners are among some of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s faves. Here are the best looks from the night.

For a full list of winners head here.

judith-light-gotham-awardsJudith Light received a Made in NY Appreciation Award and we should all appreciate Judith Light; especially this magnificent giving none of the fucks posing. Great outfit too.krysten-ritterKrysten Ritter is going full drama in a Cushnie Et Ochs caped number paired with fabulous Nicholas Kirkwood heels. A bold red lip is the perfect finishing touch to this look.


And look who she was hanging out with at the event. All the swoons.cate-blanchett-and-amy-adamsSpeaking of swoons; Amy Adams is serving up a super hot ladysuit treat in Max Mara after receiving the career tribute honor from fellow award show royalty Cate Blanchett.

Blanchett is also crushing it in a super interesting ladysuit choice and her Christopher Kane ensemble is as bold as it is wonderful; the top looks like something you might hang on your wall.emily-mortimer-and-amy-adamsMore from Amy Adams as she poses it up a storm with the always delightful Emily Mortimer.naomie-harrisThe dress and pants combo is one I have complicated feelings about mostly because it reminds me of 1999, but Naomie Harris is pulling off this sequin split as the cast of Moonlight took home the ensemble award and the film picked up Best Feature and Best Screenplay. keegan-michael-keyA very dapper Keegan-Michael Key was on hand to host the event.winona-and-ethanPretty much a solid representation of 90s nostalgic feelings in 2016 picture form. Krysten Ritter agrees.

Out of the Box: Look of the Week

6 Dec

‘Tis the season for all of those end of year musings and the start of the many award shows between now and the Oscars. “Out of the Box” is taking a look at the red carpet offerings from this week, in what I should imagine will be the first of many award show fashion posts in the coming months. While I might normally moan about the absence of color, as it’s heading towards the holiday season the variety of twists on the LBD is more than acceptable.

Gotham Awards

There is so much to say about this group shot from the Gotham Independent Film Awards and bullet points seem like the best way forward:

  • Michael B. Jordan has been killing it on the red carpet all year and I’m so happy to see him getting so much recognition; he picked up Breakthrough Actor for Fruitvale Station¬†at this awards show.
  • Rashida Jones has filmed her last¬†Parks and Recreation¬†episode which is giving me all the Leslie and Ann related sads, but yay for real life friendship.
  • Also Amy Poehler looks stunning in a leather shouldered Catherine Deane dress. And yes I’m totally digging her real life romance with Nick Kroll who hosted the Gotham Awards. Will ‘The Douche’ make an appearance this season?
  • Oh hey, Jordan Catalano’s hair is super long and I kind of like it. While my teen crush on Jared Leto has all but gone I am looking forward to seeing¬†Dallas Buyers Club¬†and the inevitable reunion with Claire Danes at the Golden Globes. This needs to happen.

Zosia MametAt the same event Girls¬†star Zosia Mamet looks super cute in a Rebecca Minkoff black mini jersey dress. Mamet’s red carpet face tends to give off an air of boredom, not on this occasion where she looks super smiley and comfortable. I’m also very much in love with her chunky buckled black shoes and while I don’t tend to be a heel wearer, I’m definitely coveting this pair.

Clemence Posey

This is how you do winter floral and¬†The Tunnel¬†star Cl√©mence Po√©sy accompanies designer Erdem to the British Fashion Awards – he picked up the Red Carpet Award – and Po√©sy shows just why he won, as she’s rocking an Erdem creation. While I haven’t been loving the sheer trend overall (see every Dior gown Jennifer Lawrence wore for the¬†Catching Fire¬†press tour), Erdem has used this technique well and one of my favorite looks at the Met Gala earlier this year was Lena Dunham in Erdem.

Julianna Margulies

It’s been a big week for Julianna Margulies as The Good Wife¬†celebrated 100 episodes and¬†she looks stunning in Pamella Roland at the¬†Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Gala dinner. The contrasting element of the crisscross bodice with the full skirt (with bonus pockets!) is elegant and adds fun twist on the monochrome trend that has been big this year. I’d maybe like to see a crimson lip tone, but other than that this is a great look for the¬†Good Wife¬†star.
